Pastoral Help & Advice


At Croxley Danes, we believe that positive emotional wellbeing and mental health are crucial to enable students to feel happy both in themselves and at school. When students enjoy positive mental health and wellbeing, they are better able to realise their own potential, cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively and fruitfully and make a contribution to their wider community.

To this end, we have an active programme in place through Personal Development that focuses on aspects such as resilience, keeping safe online, developing a ‘protective layer’, bullying and mental wellbeing to name but a few. 

However, whilst we encourage all students to feel comfortable in approaching their parent,  form tutor, Head of Year or any member of staff, we understand that sometimes this may be something they feel unable to do. In such cases, there are a number of support websites and phone numbers published in each student planner which may prove helpful. In addition to this, we have attached below a Hertfordshire approved ‘Signposting Guide’ which has further advice and support available for a whole range of topics such as:

  • Addiction
  • Bereavement
  • Education and Employment
  • Family Support
  • Sex, Sexuality and Gender
  • Mental Health- Counselling, Eating, Self Harm, Suicidal Thoughts
  • Money


Below is information for parents and carers that may be useful on how to support your child with tools, information and webinars. This page will be updated regularly with information and relevant support for latest issues that may be concerning your child.
